Moooi Gallery is the renowned Dutch designer Marcel Wander's design gallery based around the principle of 'a collection of everything possible'. And that is exactly what it looks like: a giant white room (850 square metres) that serves as a stage for some of the craziest design ideas - a showroom and a platform for inspiration in one, featuring 'spider' chandeliers; lighting fixtures designed as black life-size racing horses saddled with colourful rugs; 'monster' chairs and a perfectly choreographed chaos of a million of things, at times reminiscent of a 21st-century take on Salvador Dalí, the granddad of Surrealism. Walls are lined with lopsided, slanted cabinets and shelves - a contemporary design world of distorting mirrors where nothing is quite what it looks like and yet everything is exactly what it looks like. It is a perfect source of inspiration should you suddenly be grabbed by a sudden overwhelming wish to stage a mischievous revolution at your own living space. Never you doubt - that is exactly what is going to happen after a visit to the Moooi Gallery.
